West Ham United completed the £25 million (29.1 million euros) signing of French defender Kurt Zouma from Premier League rivals Chelsea on Saturday.

The 26-year-old has agreed a four-year contract after leaving Stamford Bridge where he won two Premier League titles and a Champions League winners’ medal.

“I’m very happy and very proud,” Zouma told West Ham TV.

“My conversation with the manager went very fast. I just felt like he really wanted me to come and join the team, especially a good team that’s started the season very, very well.”

West Ham lead the Premier League table but have conceded five goals in their three matches so far after Saturday’s 2-2 draw with Crystal Palace.



“I am delighted to welcome Kurt to West Ham United,” said West Ham boss David Moyes.

“He is a player we have tracked for some time, and we have taken great care and diligence to make the transfer happen. He was always our first choice and I am very happy that he is now our player.”
